Re: Drag and drop droplets in workflows Brandon Hicks Thu May 14 09:01:36 2009

Hi,
Unless I did something wrong, putting the droplet just as a folder
action didn't even attempt to launch it when I pasted a file into the
folder.

The main reason I wanted to launch the droplet through a workflow was
because I'd be copying audio files into the folder from the network,
so I wanted to use the wait for files to copy automator action, then
have that somehow fake drag and drop the copied files onto the
converter droplet.
